Workshop Overview and Topics:
Operating systems (OS) constitute a major software component and are essential to any computing system. Commercial and server workloads such as online transaction processing, database, file/e-mail servers involve significant OS-level activity. The interactions between OS and emerging architectures (e.g. homogeneous and heterogeneous chip multiprocessors, simultaneous multithreading systems) / technology (e.g. hardware-assisted virtualization) are projected to continuously increase. To optimize system performance/power/reliability/security, it is important to facilitate efficient interaction and cooperation between the two constantly evolving components - computer architecture and OS.
This workshop focuses on characterizing, modeling, and optimizing the interaction between OS and hardware in the light of emerging architecture paradigms, workloads, and computing technology. Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
Furthermore, the workshop aims at providing a forum for researchers, engineers, and students from academia and industry to discuss their latest research in computer architecture and OS, to bring their ideas and research problems to the attention of others, and to obtain valuable and instant feedback from fellow researchers.
